Thanks for your comments. :)
I just wish I could figure out what all this rtrequest/arp stuff was
about so I could finish it. :)
If anyone wants to look at the code just pop me an email. It's based on
a GPL driver (although there isn't anything really left of it other than
#defines and a few comments, the code is all new) so I don't know how/if
I can get it added to FreeBSD HEAD.
Anyway, back to figuring out arp. UGH!
